The northwestern part of Dutchess County sparkles and shines, but not in a gaudy, neon sort of way. It gleams like precious metal set with gemstones, living a sleek modern lifestyle that has grown up without compromising centuries of traditional grace. When New York was first settled, this area promptly became the domain of the landed gentry who could live wherever they chose. This was where they chose, and it’s easy to see why.
